DruncanVeasey (7157) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle round The Jenners (thought it was my first ever bottle-condtioned Luxembourgian when I was rating it, bit disappointed to find out it’s Belgian). Pale and fizzing with a tall head and fishbowl floaties. Slight honey, Belgian-like hop and botanicals aroma; lime and vanilla. Fine and marmalade-hinting hop, slight grassiness, honey. Watery finish with almond specks. Solid.

Eructoblaster (2999) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy blond body with a good white foamy head. Decent, well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with herbal hints. Its malty taste carries corny and sweet notes. Ends with a short, misbalanced corny/sweet finish. Disappointing.

altonbrownd (3722) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle from Delhaize. Golden honey body with lots of head. Nose is quite malty and spicy. Flavour is caramel, malts and sweet. Texture is syrupy and nice. Good one.

thebeertourist (4786) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle from Utobeer. Pale golden with a sizeable head, but a lot of sediment floating around. Good fruity and spicy aroma. Some herbal bitterness, otherwise quite fruity. Not bad.

spkevin (383) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle from a local supermarket in the Belgian Ardennes. Pours dark orange/light red with a good white head. A lot of yeast floating in the glass. Nice aroma with Belgian Ale hints. Good taste with spicey notes. Gets better along the way. Nice brew!

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
At l’Autre Oeil. Pours pale gold, good carbonation. Forms quite a thick whitehead, remains through. Aroma is mainly malty, some citrus in the way. Slightly spicy as well, can’t tell which. Quite "sparkling" in the mouth : otherwise, "lead" taste is banana and honey are leading the way... Chamomilla in that one (?!). That was on the menu, and made sense. Just never expected to actually taste that. Medium-body, at the very most. Finish is much bitter than everything that came before. Zero acidity. Feels oily, and then quite sticky. Pretty sweet. Pretty good one, but mainly summer stuff.

goozen (2928) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2010
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy yellow coloured ale with some sweet taste, pretty safe brew for an football club. Why not to try some Vienna malts that will gives the beer and red colour.
